This weekend was a nice balance of work and play, I spent time with friends, indulged in some fashion and enjoyed some down-time which was a much appreciated rarity.

On Friday night I was invited to attend a Pre-Junos cocktail party hosted by RW&CO. The event took place in a penthouse suite (used for outfitting celebrities such as Simple Plan, Sam Roberts & Down with Webster) at the Westin Ottawa, (one of the city's swankiest hotels) and guests were treated to elegant hors d'oeuvres, fruity cocktails and were able to preview RW&CO's new spring/summer collection.

|Skirt, Top, Blazer & Scarf- Thrifted; Hosiery- Lilac Lingerie; Ring- H&M; Shoes- Charlotte Russe|
This is what I wore to work on Saturday for a makeup program soft launch (isn't my job fun!) It's still quite brisk in Ottawa so pantyhose and layers are a must! I'm linking up this outfit to Inspiration Monday, mine being the Canuck cold weather version!

I don't like to make a big deal of my Birthday (which was March 22nd) and usually don't have a party but this year my best friend decided to host a soiree for me on Saturday night and it was a fun, intimate evening with 10 friends, lots of candy, sushi, homemade vegan cupcakes and dancing (actually that was just me Zumba dancing in the living room after a few cocktails!) Plus it gave me an excuse to wear my black tutu, sparkly vintage vest and thigh high boots for a look that screamed showgirl!
And then on Sunday I cleaned, did laundry and organized my house which can be quite the relaxing activity when you have nothing else planned! I wore my pjs all day and ate left-over B-day cupcakes for breakfast- now that's what I call a food day!
